We invite both the regional and international oil and gas communities to join us in Nairobi, 12th to 14th November. I ask you to join me in wholeheartedly supporting this event” said Hon. KiraituMurungi. He explained how the country is keen to learn from the best practices around the world to guide the exploitation of oil in an effort to protect the country from the risks associated with oil. “We are looking at countries like Abu Dhabi, Norway and Ghana which have managed their oil resources fairly well as examples. However, we want to make Kenya a case study of the best management of oil in the world,” he said. Case studies on using oil revenues for a diverse economy are covered on the summit programme in session 4 on the impact of increasing oil and gas revenues for the region.
The EAOGS programme includes sessions led by government and industry experts examining the challenges and opportunities in East Africa from a government and private company perspective; finance, infrastructure projects, pipelines, LNG terminals, legislation, security, local content, technology transfer and future projects.
